Distinguished professor celebrates 50 years at Penn State Brandywine
In an era of increasingly frequent job changes — when even 10-15 years at the same employer stands out for its longevity — Distinguished Professor of Political Science Stephen Cimbala’s 50 years at Penn State Brandywine reflect a remarkable achievement.
Cimbala — a Penn State alumnus — had been teaching at the State University of New York–Stony Brook for four years when he saw an announcement for a chief academic officer at Penn State Delaware County, the original name of the campus that had been founded in 1967. After a successful application and interview process, he joined the campus in 1973.
